    Hey Subford,

    I hope you are well. I was referred to you because you might be able to help me out. I was driving down the highway (1989 f250 7.3 idi) when my headlights, radio, and horn went dead. I opened up the hood and saw that it was overheating and the coolant reservoir tank was bubbling over. I assume that the coolant got to something electrical but I'm not positive. I'm definitely not a mechanical genius but I can figure stuff out with help. I replaced the relay that was lying directly behind the tank and the radio now seems to come in and out but the horn and headlights still aren't working. Any ideas?

    Dear Subford, I am trying to replace the o-rings wit new ones that are compatible with ethanol. My F150 is a 1989 year model. F1UZ-9B263-B, Fuel Tank Selector Valve. I have it apart and am afraid to pull to hard on the two valves because of fear I might be doing it wrong and damage them. Are they usually hard to remove from the body? is there a special way you pull them out? Please give me your advice.

    Thank you, we found one off of a bronco installed it but now it won't run for more than a few seconds.before we installed it it was running but one of the fuel pumps was sounding too loud and i had read that it could be hard on the engine to run the van without the fuel resevoir, i have bought both fuel pumps, sensors, filter and a new brain. I'm at a loss here financially and my brain is hurting trying to figure this out. Than you for any input you may have. He should have tested the part before insalling.

    Hi there subford! I have been studying your forums for the past couple weeks. We've taken out one of the dual tanks on my brothers 1988 Ford e150 and have it running but am unable to locate a fuels resevoir assembly for a single tank, part #FOTZ9K044-A. I have searched the internet but not the junk yards, is there other part that would work. This has really been an education your posts have helped immensely. First time on a forum, thank you.

    Restoring my F150 for my daughter to drive to school - starting with the fuel system. It's been sitting around for ages. Pulled both tanks to have em cleaned, bought all new fuel pumps and fuel filters. My parts guy got me a universal fuel selector valve (no way I want to use this).

    I found a new OE looking one on Amazon...

    I've read through all your posts about cleaning em out, but with the age of this thing, and the goo I found in the tank, I'm thinking it would be best to just replace it.

    Is there a vendor on here that sells em? Or is there someone else you know that sells a new one? Amazon and E-bay are about the only places that I have found. Thanks in advance for the help.
